With Windows 7 reaching end of support on January 14th, we continue to receive questions about the Windows 7 Extended Security Update (ESU) program. As a result, we'll be hosting a second "Ask Microsoft Anything" (AMA) session on Thursday, January 23rd from 9:00-10:00 AM Pacific Time here on the Tech Community. Save the date!

 

To join, simply, visit the Windows 10 AMA space on January 23rd at 9:00 AM Pacific Time and click "Start a New Conversation" to post your question. This event is open to all Tech Community members and we'll have members of the Microsoft product, engineering, and licensing teams standing by to provide answers.

We look forward to answering your questions!
